The Breast Friends Forever support group typically has between 20-30 women who attend monthly meetings at the Kayden Center. Kristy Capps, RN, nurse navigator for the Elizabeth Reilly Breast Center, faciliates the group. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month in Oct., she teamed up with Melanie Tecklenburg, mammography supervisor, for a special meeting to honor the women in Henderson County who have been diagnosed with breast cancer this year. The women gathered for food and refreshments, prizes, fellowship and a celebration of life.
